Why change a good thing?

Based on positive feedback the Good Space Dash for the Beads is excited to announce we will use the same USATF certified 5k race route!  Click the image below to enlarge or download a PDF version Map-Dash-for-the-Beads-5K.

Start Location: Kidd Springs Park; 711 W Canty, Dallas, TX 75208


5k not enough?

The Good Space Dash for the Beads also features a 10k.  It uses the same famous 5k route to start and finish but adds a tour past the Stevens Park Golf Course.  The route is certified by USA Track and Field.


King of the Hill Challenge

King of the Hill is a timed “mini-event” that will be automatically available for all runners at this year’s Dash for the Beads Charity 5K / 10K Race and Festival. It starts at the base of the tallest hill on the course and ends at the top of the hill. This will be timed as an “event within an event” using the timing chip embedded in each runner’s bib number.

Prizes will be awarded to the fastest man and woman to run up the hill, while running in the regular Dash for the Beads races.

Race Day Parking

The Dash run/walk is entirely through neighborhoods in North Oak Cliff. All parking is street parking and is free of charge. Please abide by all street signs that designate a no parking area or one way parking. The map below shows in YELLOW the most convenient streets for parking and the RED line designates the race course. Please do NOT park on the race course, and do not attempt to park on Canty near the Registration area. Also, please be considerate of the neighbors house that you are parked in front of when arriving and departing from the race.  There will be pink arrows around the race site to help direct people to parking the morning of the race.
